I would like to dispute a couple of points made by Dipak Basu:
First, Formosa (Taiwan) was Chinese territory prior to 1895. So, after 1949, it was reclaimed rather than occupied as he claims. I wonder what the Taiwanese (Chinese Nationalists) would make of the notion that they are “occupying” their island.
